This series of exercises uses the eyes and eye pressure to create different states of consciousness. Each eye position alters the brain frequencies and the way thoughts are transformed in the mind. This kriya brings deep relaxation and calmness. It causes the tension in all the eye muscles to relax so that abnormal vision can decrease. The eyes are keys to entering the vision of the inner world as well as the outer world.
